Junkyard of Death

Today is Joe Kubert's 84th birthday! All week been posting his work in his honor. Still got a couple more posts coming yet today.

Ragman was yet another Robert Kanigher creation and Kubert had a hand in each issue, but #5 was his pencils AND inks. The art is great, the story so-so, with the usual cliches. Ragman seems to evoke The Shadow, The Batman and such. I don't think it's been reprinted much, and it's Kubert!

I remember reading Ragman when it first came out. I loved it because it was gritty and set in the inner city, I lived in Detroit at the time. Flash forward to thirty odd years later and I bought an old issue of Ragman from my local comic book shop a few weeks back. Thanks much for spotlighting Kuebert all week.

FWLIW, an earlier Ragman makes an appearance at Gone & Forgotten.

Gotta admit, that's an interesting incarnation of the character. And dat's a funny blog to boot.
